What’s In Store For Fall? Get Our Canadian Forecast!

The following forecast is for Canada. Click here to see our United States fall forecast.

Fall is just around the corner! While many consider Labour Day the unofficial gateway to the change of seasons from summer to fall, it’s officially the Autumnal Equinox, which begins on Monday, September 22, at 10:29 p.m. (EDT). In many areas it already feels like fall, and in some, it has felt like fall for much of the summer.

You’ve already read our winter forecast for Canada, but what about the coming season? Will fall be furious or fabulous? Here’s what we expect:

Showery conditions are in store for the opening days of fall for most of the country, with colder rains predicted into October for Ontario and Prairie Provinces.

Thanksgiving will be clear and fair in the Eastern portion of Canada to Ontario; the Prairies and British Columbia will see passing showers for the holiday.

An offshore tropical storm could pose a threat to Newfoudland, Labrador, Nova Scotia and Quebec provinces around the 20th-23rd of October with wet weather forecasted through Halloween in these areas.  Watch for dust storms in the Rockies and portions of the Prairies from the 28th-31st. Good news for ghosts and goblins in Ontario: their weather for Trick or Treating will be dry.

Most areas will see unsettled weather by Remembrance Day with temperatures dropping. The east and west will see rain and wet snow. In Ontario, an intensifying storm moving east brings heavy rain or wet snow, followed by frigidly cold air.

As fall blurs into winter, rain, wet snow showers and wind prevail for most of the country; nearly everyone can expect cold temperatures for the first part of December.

For the complete weather outlook, be sure to check out our long-range weather forecast online here, and in the 2015 Canadian Farmers’ Almanac which provides 16 months of weather forecasts!

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
